I'm not sure the 11/10/67 sounds much different than what we had. While it may be a better transfer, the source & reel lineage are identical to the copy already on here. (The new copy is also missing the Alligator>Caution, which we know from a newspaper review was played on 11/10.)
Considering that the original recording is said to be 8-track, our nearly mono copy is not too spiffy, and a real stereo mix of the Vault master would be wonderful.

11/14/67 is what's really different - while the Born Cross-Eyed sounds a bit better, the instrumental studio Dark Star is significantly better quality, in stereo rather than mono! Very exciting for Dark Star buffs...
